West Boldon, Hylton Grove
Agriculture and Subsistence
Hylton Grove is recorded but not labelled on Greenwood's plan of 1820. This farm along with Elliscope and Make-Me-Rich farm are shown on the 1840 tithe plan as one holding known as the Hylton Bridge Estate owned by John Dutton. The original farmhouse at Hylton Grove was a long east/west range set back from the road, with a range running perpendicular to the west. The present building replaced this in the mid-late 19th century.
